Suspension Specs questions

Hey guys, I know there are tons of suspension threads out there but I didn't see any that mentioned these questions I had. Keep in mind I am strictly a daily driver.

I'm looking at panhard bars but I'm not sure what material to go with. I see some that are steel and some that are aluminum? There are other material makes I think but which is better or is there any difference?

Should all ends be poly bushings or do you want to have some that aren't?

Also, which parts are necessary to be adjustable? Do they need to be single, double or triple adjustable?

There are just so many options and variables that come into play whenever changing out suspension and handling parts. I just need some direction and opinions on this subject. Thanks in advance guys!

Personally I'd go with either ford racing or white line. I've only heard good things in regards to the product and the brand. Both are steel iirc. I'd go with steel personally. Although I don't think they are triple adjustable

Although I don't think I would want a double, triple, or quadruple adjustable if my stang was only ever gonna be a dd

For my own Curiosity, would a completely non adjustable Panhard bar be an noticeable improvement over its GT counterpart???

I know we all have the particular brands we are all partial to and I appreciate the recommendations guys I do, thank you.

This threads purpose is more about determining what the best components and specs are of each individual part of the suspension and why that specific option is ideal.

I have the Ford Racing chrome moly panhard bar, which is probably overkill for a daily driver.

No, you will find that your rear axle in your car is not centered and if you are adding a panhard then the adjustment will help you correct it even at stock height. Not a necessity but if your gonna do it....

Haha that is high performance for sure, if I had unlimited funding then I know I could find some way to justify that purchase.

Hotchkis makes good parts but their panhard bar has to be taken apart on one end to adjust and to do that you have to take down the sway bar end link....what a pain in the arse and bad design.
